Q. Are these stem cells the same as embryonic stem cells?
A. 

No. IMC Stem Cell therapies only uses your own adult stem cells extracted from the patients fat deposits, blood (PRP) and Bone Marrow, and do not use Embryonic stem cells.

Q. What is the downtime from a stem cell or platelet procedure?
A. 

Essentially, there is very minimal downtime from either procedure. In contrary, we encourage the patient to go out and use the extremity. This helps the stem cells do their job better.

Q. Can the procedure fail?
A. 

Like any other procedure there is no 100% guarantee that the procedure will work. In certain cases, it is possible that you may need additional treatments or your stem cells do not have enough repair potential relative to the severity of your disease.
